I have a dream.

Perhaps you can help make it a reality.

You see, I started A Conscious Rethink a couple of years back because I wanted to provide genuinely useful advice to people in relation to the biggest of big things: LIFE.

I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but suffice to say I’m pretty proud of growing to beyond 600,000 Facebook fans, and as many 800,000 visitors to my website each month. I just love how many lives I have been able to touch with what I am now doing; it puts a smile on my face to know that I am helping people on their journeys.

But (yes, I’m afraid there is a but)...this success doesn’t really translate into a reliable or substantial source of income for me. Now, that wouldn’t be a problem if I had a job and A Conscious Rethink was just a little side project I work on evenings and weekends. But it’s not.

I spend between 40 and 50 hours a week working hard to make sure things keep moving. This is my job. I am essentially a one man band. I write blog posts for the website, I create endless numbers of quote images designed to inspire and motivate my Facebook fans, I edit and publish articles from other people (more on that in a minute), and I deal with messages and emails from fans and readers alike.

And none of this comes free, either. As much as I love them for keeping my website alive, the pesky hosting company keep sending me these bills for their services. I buy professional stock photos for all of my articles. I pay to get my posts in front of as many people as possible using Facebook’s “boost” feature. I even pay two writers to help me keep you, my fans and readers, coming back.

Even though I reach a lot of people each week, the advertising I have on my website doesn’t get anywhere near providing an income I can live off. And besides, I don’t really like pushing ads onto my lovely readers – I’d much rather not have them there at all.

So that’s where you come in. I hope you find some value in the blog posts I publish on A Conscious Rethink, and I hope you can find it in that big ol’ heart of yours to help me. I want to take things to the next level and write even better posts, with even more helpful advice and thought-provoking ideas.

But I can’t do this alone.

Here’s what I’d do with any and all generous donations from people like you:

1) Go ad-free. Reduce the amount of advertising on my site and eventually get rid of it for good.

2) Go faster. Upgrade my website hosting so that my site is not only more reliable, but also much faster to load, so that you don’t get frustrated when it all moves in slow motion like it sometimes does now.

3) Be fair. Pay my lovely writers a little bit more. They are great, but I drove a very hard bargain when I hired them and I’m probably undervaluing their writing talents massively. They deserve a little extra in their pay packets each month if you ask me.

4) Be better. I know I can do better with my blog posts, but time is a killer. With enough support, I’d not only write a greater number of what I call “in-depth” articles that try to address topics from top to bottom, but I’d go back over the articles I’ve already published and spend time making them the very best they can be.

With your help, I would love to turn A Conscious Rethink into one of the best resources for actionable and effective advice on life. Whether that’s in the area of relationships, life goals, anxiety, positivity, mind, body, and spirit, your support can help me achieve this aim.

Thank you even for getting this far. If you become a supporter, then even bigger thanks – you probably don’t realise just how much it means to me.

Every single dollar counts and that's why you should be very proud of the support you are giving so generously. I am so eternally grateful to you. You might be asking "but what do I get?" Well, you get to help me make A Conscious Rethink a world beater - I hope that gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Three Makes Free
$3 or more per month
3 is the magic number, or is it a crowd? Either way, today 3 is my favourite number and a very lucky one at that as it means I'm that bit closer to reaching my target of going ad-free. You will be rewarded with a sound night's sleep (disclaimer: a good night's kip is not guaranteed!)
High Five!
$5 or more per month
A tear of joy runs down my face as I write this. Your support just makes me so happy and I cannot believe my luck that someone as lovely as you is willing to be so kind and generous. Virtual high five!
High Ten?!
$10 or more per month
Now it's two tears, one from either eye, that make their way down my cheeks. Now I'm happy for another reason, too: I love round numbers :)
Oh wow, are you serious?
$25 or more per month
I'm getting a little embarrassed now. I shouldn't be asking for such a massive amount because I know how far this can go in the real world, away from your computer screens and mobile devices. This will make such a difference on my journey to turn A Conscious Rethink into something amazing. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart - and the top and middle of my heart, too! My whole heart thanks you!

I'll limit the number of adverts that appear on any single page of A Conscious Rethink to 2. That means fewer annoying banners getting in the way of your enjoyment of my blog posts. I'll also upgrade my hosting to something a bit more sturdy so you can enjoy a super-quick website. Finally, I'll give my writers a deserved raise to show them how much they are appreciated.
